Boon Hill: A Graveyard Simulator - now on Steam Greenlight


After a successful Kickstarter, indie dev Matthew Ritter is looking for support for his highly original game "Boon Hill" on Steam Greenlight.  I've got to admit that, while in all honesty the game doesn't appeal to me much personally, it's one of the most original game concepts I've seen in the last few years, and after all that's one of the big advantages of indie gaming - you get to see things being made that the big companies wouldn't dream of releasing.

So, what is it?  Basically, it's a graveyard, with lots of epitaphs to read.  There is a bit more to it than that of course, but this is not a game with a start, middle and end - it's a game of finding out about people who once lived, what their connections were, and reflecting on these.  It's strange, it's a little mysterious, could be depressing, and is definitely 100% indie!

Check out the Steam Greenlight page for more info and, of course, cast your vote if it's something you'd be interested in playing!
